    i was looking in my tank about 10 minutes ago with a flashlight and saw one of my red scarlet reef hermits almost pick herself out of her shell and release thousands of paticles. At first i thought i witnessed a Hermit going to the bathroom. Then I realized that hermit poo doesnt move. She had...
  7. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Hi all, I thought I'd chronicle my new tank. I had seahorses about 4 years ago and that tank had been sitting idle so I decided to start it up again. After some research I realized that the old tank was too small. Old Tank I was very reluctant to change from this tank not because of cost...

  16. The THINK Tank
    We have all heard about the importance of a good clean up crew and to tell you the thruth, I think some of the crew packages are way too many creatures for our tanks. Not to mention the fact that crabs are hunters and will kill some snails and themselves, it just seem to me like a never ending...
